Love the scent of roasted turkey and stuffing? Now get that same olfactory experience via candle. Yankee Candle has released a Thanksgiving Collection that features food-inspired candles such as turkey and stuffing, sweet potato pie and cranberry sauce. Said the company's PR director to the Boston Herald, "It's for the person who doesn't cook, or the one who needs a last-minute gift, or who can't get enough of the smells of Thanksgiving."
The large size, which is currently on sale for just $10, offers 100 to 150 hours of turkey and stuffing fragrance. Said one reviewer, "It does smell exactly like turkey and stuffing and is bringing a little holiday cheer to my office! I burn it alternately with the Spiced Pumpkin candle and I am loving it. I can definitely feel the holidays coming!"
